Ask The Designer

This week we are asking a question from:

Emy Flint @ Semi Gloss Design

“How Do You Use Color In Your Home?”

 I love color. Sprinkle it around like confetti. In other words, throw it everywhere. The more, the merrier in my book. Every room in my house has a shade of blue in it, but I enjoy adding plenty of black and white to each space too. Bold color just makes me happy. It’s like instant sunshine. My recently completed sunroom feels like a day on the beach, even on the dreariest of days!

Thanks Emy!! I love color too, make sure to check out all the bloggers answers  along with yours truly (Designer #10) at her blog . (Click here to link to Emy’s blog and the get answers from our 16 expert bloggers)
